Finding out about Italy may require a lifetime. Italy offers many unique historical sites together with a stunning variety of scenery.

Italian culture is extraordinarily rich and recognized around the world for its outstanding artists, writers, composers and philosophers.

Italy is famous for its delicious food and excellent wine besides for fashion and design. The made-in-Italy products are connected with quality, style and good taste.

In order to have a link with Italy and its culture, history and society it goes without saying that it is important to learn one of the most beautiful languages in the world first. Italian is a Romance language. The Romance languages (also sometimes called Romanic languages) are a language family in the Indo-European languages.

I can help you discover my country, Italy, and find many reasons to fall in love with it.


  • You can join an individual or group Italian Language Course at my place or yours;
  • You can join an intensive Italian Language Course at one of the best schools in Italy. It's a combination of learning the language and experiencing the Italian life and culture;
  • You can get some suggestions on extraordinary places to visit and tours in Italy;
  • You can have some cooking lessons ... of course in Italian and about Italian food!


I am looking forward to meeting you!

Chiara Forzi

My name is Chiara, I come from Italy. I was born in Brescia where I used to live, apart from some short stays abroad for learning or working.

Two years ago I moved to Maastricht (The Netherlands).

I graduated in Foreign Language and Literature (English and German) at the Università degli Studi in Parma.

I taught English for 18 years as Adjunct Professor of Medical English at the University of Brescia, School of Medicine.

I have always worked as a translator of medical, technical and business texts, besides dealing with the organization of small medical congresses and courses, as well as events in my town.

Five years ago I started to teach Italian, cooperating with a language school in Brescia. The courses were addressed both to young or university students and adults.

One of my favourite hobbies is travelling, both abroad and around my country. Besides the most popular tourist attractions, Italy has many 'special' and unique unknown places, where I love to go.

It's commonly known that food plays an important role in the way of living of Italian people, including myself. I am very keen on cooking. My recipes are easy, quick, but tasteful. They represent the Italian home made way of cooking.
